Sunday spinning update: like a rainbow

I finally finished up the Boreal skein of BFL from Twisted Fiber Art. Here it is all relaxed showing its rainbow-like progression:

And here’s the skein:

I got about 530 yards of chain-plied soft yarn out of this, which is wonderful. Now I’m not sure what it wants to be, which is usually how I feel about my handspun.

In family news, we celebrated New Year’s Eve at home this year. My mother suggested that we all dress up for dinner. Before the sentence was finished, my daughter had run upstairs to change and beautify. Somehow this always-happy-in-jeans-and-a-shirt mom has ended up with a girl who loves to dress up and accessorize. She had the perfect sparkly outfit for the occasion. I lent her a silver shawl for fear of her being cold in a sleeveless dress.

Check out those shiny wedges. When I told her I liked her wedges, she responded with, “How did you know that’s what they’re called?” Apparently if I don’t own something I’m not expected to know what it is ;)

    That yarn would look wonderful paired with a solid in a double knit scarf, perhaps a Lucy Neatby pattern.
